National Institute of Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (NIGEB)

National Institute of Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (NIGEB) was founded in Tehran, Iran, in 1989. It is affiliated to Iran`s Ministry of Science, Research and Technology. The institute was established with dual purposes of promoting research in avant-garde areas of biological sciences and biotechnology as well as providing advanced training and educational programs. At the time being, the NIGEB is comprised of three sub-institutes and holds MSc and PhD educational programs. Each sub-institute is dedicated to an innovative investigation in different fields of biotechnology:

1. Institute of Medical Biotechnology (IMB) runs the departments of:

  • Medical Genetics
  • Stem Cell
  • Molecular Medicine

2. Institute of Agricultural Biotechnology (IAB) manages the departments of:

  • Plant Bioproducts
  • Plant Molecular Biotechnology
  • Animal Biotechnology

3. Institute of Industrial and Environmental Biotechnology (IIEB) conducts the departments of:

  • Bioprocess Engineering
  • Systems Biotechnology
  • Energy and Environmental Biotechnology

NIGEB is located in a unique complex of buildings designed and equipped with numerous laboratories and facilities for studies on various fields of biotechnology. It has also been equipped with a modern pilot plant for exploring the production of new Biotherapeutics. Researchers from other Iranian universities and research centers as well as scientists around the globe are cooperating with the NIGEB through mutual research projects and applied educational courses.
